Smoked ribs are one of the staple dishes every smoker must experience – delicious, satisfying and healthy when prepared properly!
Ribs can be prepared using either a dry rub or wet marinade, with dry rubs typically consisting of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and brown sugar; wet marinades often consist of water mixed with ketchup or barbecue sauce; both methods will add extra flavor.
Start by placing the ribs in foil, then adding some form of liquid such as water or agave nectar spritzed onto them during the last two hours of smoking in order to create steam which will tenderize them during that period. Remove them when done and brush on some sauce as a final step.
Chicken is an integral component of many meals and when smoked low and slow it produces juicy and flavorful meat that’s perfect for sandwiches, salads or soup. Plus it makes great leftovers!
Applying a dry rub and smoking it at higher temperatures helps avoid rubbery skin that occurs with lower-temperature smoking of chicken.
Brining can be made simple by mixing cold water and coarse kosher salt in a large container until all of the salt dissolves, then add your chicken. Refrigerate this combination for at least 4-6 hours prior to smoking it; keeping in mind that brined chicken cooks faster, you may need to adjust your smoker temperature accordingly.
Smoked Pork Chops

They boast an uncommon flavor profile that pairs beautifully with sweeter flavors, making them an excellent option for glaze pork chops or stuffing with apples or other fruits.
Pork chops are low-cal meals that deliver essential proteins, iron, zinc, thiamin potassium vitamin B12 selenium to the body.

Smoked salmon might seem like an indulgent food that would clog your arteries, but that’s far from true! It contains low calories and an abundance of essential nutrients such as proteins, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins.
Smoked salmon typically has lower sodium content than its fresh counterpart; however, as its preparation involves curing with salt prior to smoking may not be suitable for pregnant women, children, or those with weak immune systems.
For optimal smoked salmon results, open water pens provide the optimal environment. King, sockeye, coho and pink dolly varden fish have higher fat contents which take longer to dry out and create their distinctive pellicle coatings.

Pork can help you achieve a well-balanced diet. Select lean cuts of pork and switch out traditional marinades/rubs for homemade recipes with reduced sodium.
Smoked pulled pork is an versatile and delectable meal that can be enjoyed many ways. From sandwich toppings with tart vinegar dressing, salad toppings or as part of creamy mac and cheese dishes. Or use it in creative dishes like fusion tacos!
if your smoked pulled pork tastes too smoky, this could be a telltale sign that it was cooked too long without cover or using improper wood type. Try wrapping earlier in the process or increasing its temperature so as to hasten its process.
